Easy Chana Dal Brown Rice Dosa
Adapted from http://vardhiniskitchen.blogspot.com/2011/06/adaidosa-savory-lentil-pancake.html
Chana Dal - 1 cup, soaked overnight
Brown Rice Flour - 1 cup
Red Chilli Powder
Asafoetida / Hing - a pinch
Drain the chana dal and blend it in a blender to make a fine paste. Add a little water if required for blending.
Mix the blended dal with brown rice flour, salt, red chilli powder, asafoetida. Add water to make a pancake like consistency.
Heat a tsp oil in a well seasoned cast iron skillet. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread it around. Add a few drops of oil on the sides and on top of the batter.
Cover the pan and cook on low flame for 4 minutes.
Once the bottom is browned, flip it over and cook till the other side is also browned.
Serve with potato bhaji and sambar. Alternatively, instead of making potato curry and sambar, you can add finely chopped onion, green chilli, curry leaves in the batter and serve the dosa with chutney.
